Simulators for mariner training and licensing : guidelines for deck officer training systems by T. J Hammell( Book )

12 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report addresses the proper use of the shiphandling/ship bridge simulator in effectively conducting simulator training for senior commercial ship deck officers. Information regarding the three major elements of the training system - the simulator design, the training program structure, and the instructor qualifications - is compiled into a set of guidelines. These guidelines provide the potential user of simulator-based training at the senior mariner level with the information regarding considerations to be made during development and use of an appropriate simulator-based training system. Specifically, the purpose of this report is to establish criteria to guide U.S. Coast Guard personnel in the approval or disapproval of simulator training courses for partial credit toward licenses or license endorsements. A secondary objective is to assist ship operations personnel, as prospective customers, in the evaluation of simulator training courses for their personnel. (Author)

Theoretical study to determine the sea state limit for the survival of oil slicks on the ocean by Phani P. K Raj( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Limiting sea state condition for the globular dispersion of oil slicks on the ocean have been obtained from simple considerations. Models have been derived for determining the conditions under which breaking waves will disperse an oil slick. Two types of dispersions are considered, viz., surface dispersion and globular dispersion within the water column, with emphasis on the latter type of dispersion. The results indicate that a 3 m significant wave height sea state will tend to initiate globular dispersion and that breaking waves of large crest lengths are essential for a surface dispersion to take place. The depth of penetration of globules of oil formed under breaking waves is calculated to be relatively shallow. The large number of assumptions made and their effects on the results are discussed. Several of the unknown physical parameters of importance are identified and recommendations have been made for experimental determination of some of these parameters. (Author)
Biological effects of oil pollution : a comprehensive bibliography with abstracts by Melvin Light( Book )

5 editions published between 1978 and 1981 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography is a compilation of abstracts of literature on the biological effects of oil pollution. Comprehensive coverage is provided on oil spill incidents, toxicity, tainting, behavioral effects, physiological effects, biodegradation, effects of cleaning agents, analyses for petroleum hydrocarbons in tissues and other related topics. Over 1200 references with abstracts are included. Rapid access to and cross-referencing of any given abstract is provided by use of a permuted index that lists alphabetically the keywords and corresponding citation number assigned to each abstract. The bibliography should be a valuable reference tool for oil pollution researchers, environmental scientists, federal, state and municipal planners, administrators and other decision makers. (Author)

Deepwater port inspection methods and procedures( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Deepwater Ports Act of 1974 gives the Secretary of the Department of Transportation and, by delegation, the U.S. Coast Guard, specific authority to regulate the design, construction and operation of Deep Water Ports (DWPs) off the coast of the United States. Some of the regulations deal with safety and prevention of oil pollution. This study is one of several providing information for future regulations dealing with pollution. It identifies and assesses inspection methods and procedures for the Oil Transfer System (OTS) of DWPs. Recommendations are made for inspection methods and procedures that would provide an effective means of minimizing accidental oil spills from the OTS of DWPs in U.S. waters. The recommendations were based primarily on a cost-effectiveness analysis for both commonly used and technologically advanced inspection methods and procedures that were considered to provide the best available technology for DWPs in U.S. waters. Inspection methods considered apply primarily to the components of the OTS, onsite, during normal operations and also to components of other systems whose failure could affect the integrity of the OTS. Failure of components and subsystems of the OTS, which contributed most significantly to the risk of oil spills, were identified in a system safety analysis. (Author)
Disposal systems and techniques for oil and hazardous chemicals recovered from marine spills by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Existing and conceptual equipment systems are presented for transport and disposal of spill cleanup debris. Each system is categorized and discussed in terms of possible operational conditions, applicability to different types of oils and chemicals, and capacity for the solid debris constituent. Additional data include cost, dimensions and weights of key equipment elements, transportability, and crew requirements. For oil spills, 13 disposal equipment systems (plus four auxiliary systems) are summarized based on literature and descriptions of past disposal experiences. Many floating and hazardous chemical spill debris may also be handled by the described systems although some modification is necessary to prevent recontamination of the environment, hazards to the crew, and deterioration of equipment. Conceptual methods for handling of hazardous wastes include special truck-towable containers and field-sealable bags. The oils and chemicals listed in the U.S. Coast Guard Chemical Hazards Response Information System (CHRIS: CG-446-1, Jan. 1974) are used as a basis for this study. (Author)

Development of chemical hazards response information system (CHRIS) by D. S Allan( Book )

6 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes the development of the major components of the Chemical Hazards Response Information System (CHRIS). It also describes specific studies that were conducted as part of the CHRIS program during the development phase. The reporting of the development of CHRIS is particularly appropriate at this time since the complete system has only recently been made available to Coast Guard users. The system will be carefully evaluated during the first year that it is in use, and the results of this utilization study will be reported on at a later date
